2020-2021 TDF Production Season Action Statement

The directors of theatre productions that will be presented this year by the Department of Theatre, Dance & Film at Providence College have committed to opening up space in the theatre season to tell Black centered stories and highlight Black voices in order to diversify our exploration of the human condition. We believe that the arts, and theatre in particular, should reflect and respond to the current activism and raciareckoning in our country.

As we move forward artistically and pedagogically, we are conscious of our responsibility to ensure that there will be a place for artists of color to be seen and heard in the theatre created at Providence College.


Racism is a central theme in the following stories and, as a result, there are examples of racist language throughout these texts. While some slurs have been censored in performance, other words which may be deemed outdated and offensive have been preserved in order to honor the author’s intent and to contextualize these works within the times they were created.
